Does that wing have adjustable rake?
no, its not a rake.
I know it looks like it could rake leaves in your front yard, but its actually a wing that you put on the back of your car to create downforce/stability at high speeds.

Ummmm it is a front wheel drive car.....we dont have large rear upforce. It is mostly in the front. Wings are for looks on our cars.
What does the driveline of the car have to do with downforce? Are you trying to tell me the aerodynamics of the car would change if it was RWD because thats what your implying....If you are, youre dumb. :rofl:

The wing currently on the car is functional. It provides high speed stability. I'd hope (for whomever decides to change their wing) folks wouldn't end up increasing lift while trying to charge their looks. I'm sticking with the stock wing anyway.

Please just stop talking.

The wing: not my thing but it looks alright compared to other things that are not my thing ;)

Yes I must be completly stupid, but for some reason many sites on the net seem to back this statement many times over. Please try to read up before making ignorant comments of your own. I mean I love my SRT but it isnt all about downing others for making a point. I mean you just call me stupid and show no proof of why I am wrong. If you can do that please do then Ill think real hard about being dumb. Thanks!

Yea.. take your stock wing off... drive down the street and tell me you notice a difference.. .If you do I'll call you a fricken liar. You WILL not notice a difference with the stock wing on or off.... it's "functional"... yea... maybe at speeds of 200+...

Actually I think we went over this a while ago when the forums where new.

Being a ex Aerospace Engineer major , I would tell you our stock wing does do something, not at excess speeds of 200 miles but sooner than that.

If we got the actual profile of the spoiler we could get an accurate number when it becomes effective, but at speeds over 100mph is where you would notice the diffrence ( unless we can get it pointed out by one of the engineers and state the facts of the spoiler)

The diffrence is on how the back of the car reacts to speeds/turns at high speed, of course most people say how can you feel the diffrence? well I can't answer that because my senses are not the best to determine how things work.

Thats why their is wind tunnel tests ;)

Anyhow that website points out very good points, but forgot about 1 thing, rear spoilers on FWD does indeed help them out if the wing is designed for the vehicle, you want to keep grip on the rear wheels, especially at higher speeds, if not a slight turn can make you fish tail at high speeds.

to much downforce well the website gives you the exact answer, decrease in fuel economy, since your dragging the ass of the car everywhere.
